Chapter 3: Dream House
A week after the tension filled dinner at Sora's house, Sora found herself meeting Tai at his house. She ran up on his porch as Tai ran out the door to meet him in a passionate kiss. The kiss was a deep one as Tai suddenly sprung forward and gripping her tightly turned her so that she was now pressed against the wall. He pressed their bodies together so tightly that it became more lustful, Sora groaned as she reveled in the feeling of Tai's tongue within her mouth. She clung to him tightly and passionately they kissed. Tai lifted her in his arms suddenly, yet even then the kiss didn't break. It was only when Tai's father called out did they stop their onslaught of kisses.
"Is that Sora out there?" He yelled out.
Tai and Sora looked at one another, unsure if they should respond.
"Do you want to go somewhere?" Tai asked her in a whisper.
Sora hesitated then nodded, "Okay."
The couple race down the porch and across the lawn as they quickly reached Tai's car. The drive was a short one, but Tai had brought them to the outskirts of town. Very few houses were out here, but the ones that were, were old and grand in scale. Tai pulled into on overgrown driveway. By the looks of the yard, Sora could tell that no one lived on this property for quite some time. As Tai pulled in further, Sora got her first glimpse of the house. The roof had holes, shutters were falling off their hinges, and the paint had been peeled away from years of rain. But to Sora it was magnificent. Tai stopped the car and told her to wait there. She watched as he ran up to the house, careful of the loose floor boards on the porch.
Sora got out of the truck and looked around the yard. The first thing that came to her mind was that her mother would have a fit if she knew that suck a large piece of property like this existed with so much as one flower. Sora turned to her left and saw the full moon reflect off the waters of the river that was beside the large house. It was beautiful, everything around her was beautiful.
"Sora!" Tai called out to her.
She turned at his voice and found him standing on the porch with a flashlight in his hand.
"Come on!" He yelled.
Sora ran up to him, only to have her eyes covered by his large hand.
"Don't look." He said as he guided her into the house. "Just step, careful, okay, open them."
Sora opened her eyes as she felt his warm hand leave her face. She was greeted into a large dusty foyer of the house.
"Welcome to the Yamamoto Plantation. It was built in 1772." He said as he took her hand and showed her around. "Rumor has it, that the owner proposed to his wife right in this spot and decided to build their house around it." He told her.
"Really?" Sora said as she went to go up the stairs in front of her.
"Watch out, they aren't as sturdy as they used to be. Some of them are broken too, see?" he told her as he pointed out some lopsided steps.
"This place is gigantic…" she said as she walked around to the next room.
"Yeah a gigantic piece of crap." Tai said as Sora laughed. "Well it is. But I'm gonna buy it one day and fix it up. All it needs is a new floor, some new walls, and roof for that matter."
"Is that all?" Sora asked sarcastically.
"No, it needs plumbing and electric…"
"And furniture." She suggested as she tried to straighten up a few things.
"Yes and furniture. But it's right on the water and there's a big old barn in the back that I could use as my workshop." He told her.
"And what about me?" Sora said with her hands on her hips. "Don't I get a say in this?"
"Do you want a say in this?" Tai asked her as he leaned carefully on the door frame.
"Yes, I would." She told him.
"Well, what would you like?" he asked her.
"Mmm… a white house….and blue shutters." She started.
"Mmm-hmm?" Tai listened.
"And a room over looking the river so I can paint."
"Is that all?" he asked her with a smile.
"No, I want a porch that wraps around the whole house, and a place where we can sit and relax and drink tea." She told him as she walked up to him.
"Okay." He told her.
"Promise?" she asked.
"I promise." He said seriously.
"Good." Sora said as she walked around him and into the room across the hall.
Sora stopped at a window on the other side of the room. She found herself gazing back at the moon over the river. It was so peaceful out here. Suddenly she found two strong arms wrapped around her waist and Tai's lips softly kissing behind her ear, causing her to shiver. Sora slowly turned in his arms and gazed into his chocolate eyes. She slowly closed her eyes and raised her head to meet his lips. Tai raised one hand from her waist to her face, softly cupping her cheek as he softly urged her mouth open with his tongue. Sora softly moaned into his mouth. Tai moved from her mouth as his lips traveled to her jaw line then down to her neck.
"Mmm…Tai…make love to me." Sora whispered in his ear.
Tai stopped his assault on her neck and looked up into her ruby eyes.
"Are you sure?" He asked her.
Sora nodded as she looked into his eyes.
"Okay." Tai said as he stepped away from her and walked over to the table nearby and grabbed an old cotton tablecloth.
He quickly shook as much dust off of it as he could before he spread it out on the old wood floor. Sora and Tai stood on opposite sides of the makeshift blanket, both staring at each other with uncertainties and nervousness. Taking a deep breath Sora grabbed the hem of her shirt and slowly pulled it off. As she dropped it Tai yanked his t-shirt up and over his head. Sora looked over Tai's chest and then unbuttoned her jeans and carefully stepped out of them, leaving her in just her underwear. Tai fumbled with his belt as he looked at Sora. He was finally able to toss them aside when Sora brought her hands behind her back and unclasped her bra. Tai had never seen anything more beautifully pure in his entire eighteen years. It was then that he brought his thumbs underneath the elastic band of his boxers. Breathing deep, he lowered them to the floor. Sora caught her breath as she too got the courage to take the last step and bring her underwear to the floor.
The two stood at opposite ends of the blanket exploring each other with their eyes and their hearts. Tai hesitantly stepped onto the blanket, and slowly kneeled down. Sora bit her lip as she joined him. Tai brought his head up to her face and gently tucked a piece of her fiery red hair behind her ear as he cautiously leaned in to kiss her. Sora brought her hand behind his head as she brought him closer to her body. Carefully, Tai lowered them to the floor still kissing her passionately. As he settled on top of her, Sora had a million things running through her mind.
"Tai?" she whispered.
"Yeah?" he asked as he kissed her neck.
"Um…I know that I said that I wanted you to make love to me, but um…you're going to have to walk me through this." She said as her breath quickened.
Tai raised himself on his elbows and looked at her. "Okay. You sure that you're all right?"
"Yeah." She answered.
"Did I hurt you at all?" he asked concerned.
"No, no I just…I have a lot of things going through my mind, I just…never mind." Sora said as she kissed him again bringing him back down with her.
After a few minutes Sora stopped him again.
"What are you thinking?" she asked him as he sighed and rested his forehead against her shoulder. "I mean, what are you thinking right this second?"
"Uh…" Tai said as he shook his head at a loss for words.
"Did you know that this would happen when you brought me here?" she asked him.
"No." he said as he frowned at her.
"No." he said again.
"Like, no, you didn't think about it?" she asked him bewildered.
"Of course I thought about it." He told her.
"You did….I'm talking too much, aren't I?" she said as she shook her head. "Okay, I'm just going to shut up now…okay."
"You all right?" Tai asked her.
"Yeah." She answered.
Tai slowly lowered his head as he was about to kiss her again, but just when he was mere centimeters away, she turned her head to the side.
"I just don't understand how you can be so quiet." She said as Tai sighed and got off of her, the moment now lost. "You don't have one thought? I mean I have so many, but you're fine, you don't seem to have a care in the world." She said as she looked at him with worry written across her face. It was then that she realized what she had done. "I'm sorry. I wanted this to be perfect, and now I can't seem to shut up." She apologized as she rested her head on his shoulder.
"I love you." Tai whispered after a few minutes. "Did you know that?"
Sora looked up at him and gave him a small smile. She nodded her head against his warm skin.
"I love you too." She told him.
"Yeah?" he asked.
"Yeah." She responded as she kissed him lightly.
Suddenly the front door of the house burst opened, releasing dust everywhere.
"Tai! Tai!" The person yelled.
"What? Iz…Get out of here." Tai yelled as he tried to cover himself and Sora.
"Look, I'm Sorry but Sora's parents are going crazy. They got every cop in town looking for her." He told them as the two teens quickly got up and dressed.
As Tai pulled into the driveway, they passed three police cars that were parked in front of Sora's house. As soon as Tai put the car in park Sora jumped out of the car and ran up the front yard and into the house. She came face to face with her angry mother in the lobby.
"You called the cops on me?" Sora asked her mother angrily.
"Yes, it is two o'clock in the morning, young lady. Of course we called the police." Her mother told her.
Tai had just entered the house and passed two patrolmen as he entered the lobby.
"Thank God you're all right, where have you been?" Sora's father asked her.
"Mr. Takenouchi, this is all my fault, sir." Tai told him, making himself known.
Sora's father turned to him. "Would you give us a moment please? I'd like to talk to my daughter." He said as he turned back to his daughter. "Alone, young lady."
Sora turned to look at Tai. He gave her a reassuring smile, before she headed off to her father's study. Once she was inside, Sora's father thanked the remaining officers and showed them out the door. When her father returned, Tai tried to take this opportunity to explain.
"Sir, it's really not Sora's fault. I…I lost track of time." He said to the older man.
"Take a seat, Tai." Her father told him as he showed him into the living room. Once he was seated her father went down the hall to join his wife and daughter. Tai could hear the distant shouting from his chair.
Sora ran up to her father as he entered the study.
"I'm sorry daddy." She said to him as she hugged her father.
"Sorry isn't good enough, Sora. You're going to have to stop seeing this boy." Her mother scolded then turned to her husband as he sat behind his desk. "She's out until all hours of the night with him, and it has got to stop. For all we know, he could be some kind of rapist."
"Mama!" Sora yelled at her.
"Now I did not spend the last eighteen years of my life raising a daughter and giving her everything she wanted, just so she could throw it away on a summer romance." Her mother said.
"Daddy! Please." Sora begged her father.
"She'll wind up getting her heart broken and pregnant. Now he is a nice boy, but he's…" her mother started.
"He's what? He's what mama!" Sora asked her defiantly.
"He's trash! There I said it. He's trash, not for you Sora!" she yelled back at her daughter.
"How dare you!" Sora said as she turned to walk out but her mother caught her by the arm.
"Don't you walk away from us. You aren't to see him anymore, Sora, and that's final." Her mother said sternly.
"No, it is not final, mother!" Sora told her.
"Yes, it is."
"No!" Sora yelled.
"Sora!" her mother yelled back, sick of her talking back to her.
"You are not going to tell me who I can and can't love." Sora told her with tears now running down her cheeks.
"Love?" her father asked.
"Yes, daddy, love, I love him. And he loves me."
"But he is not suitable for you Sora." Her mother explained to her.
In the other room, Tai had heard just about enough. He was not welcome in this house, and planned not to stay any longer and have to endure the hatred against his economic situation. Sighing, he rose from his chair and slowly made his way to the front door.
"I love him." Sora told her parents again.
"Sora, you're eighteen. You don't anything about love." Her mother told her.
"Oh, and you do, mama? You don't look at daddy the way I look at Tai. You don't touch or laugh, or play. You're the one that doesn't know anything about love." She told her parents as she ran out of the study.
Sora ran down the long hallway, tears still running down her face. How dare her parents tell her who she can and can't love. She searched for Tai in the rooms that she passed. When she didn't find him, she ran out the front door and found Tai getting into his car.
"Tai! Tai, wait!" she yelled as she ran down her porch steps. "Are you leaving?" she asked him as she got closer to him.
Tai nodded and looked down at his shoes.
"My God, I'm so sorry. I don't even know what to say. I'm so humiliated." She told him as she wiped the tears from her eyes.
"It's all right." He said as he softly kissed her forehead.
"No, no it's not." She told him.
"Shh… yes it is." He said as he hugged her. "I'm gonna go."
"No, I don't want you to." She said as she backed out of his embrace.
"No, I should. I have to think about some stuff." He told her as he looked anywhere but at her.
"Wait, what is there to think about? Talk to me, Tai." She asked him.
"What is there to think about? Sora, you're leaving soon. You're leaving and I'm staying here. And I'm happy that you're doing it, but you're gonna have a million things to do and…" he started to explain, but Sora was vigorously shaking her head.
"No." she told him.
"You have so much ahead of you." He told her.
"No. Don't talk like that." She scolded him.
"It's true. Look, Sora, I'm not gonna have nice things, fancy things. It doesn't… It's never gonna happen for me. It's not in the cards for me." He tried to explain to her.
"I don't have to go to school, okay?" Sora told him.
"Yes, you do." He said strictly.
"I can stay here." She told him.
"No, that's exactly what I'm saying." Tai explained.
"Then come with me." She said as she looked right into his eyes.
"Where? To Tokyo?" Tai asked bewildered.
"Yes." She answered.
"And…I mean…What am I gonna do there?" He asked her.
Sora shook her head, as she thought. "Be with me."
Tai stared at her for a few moments as he thought it over. It was a ridiculous idea, he knew he couldn't go.
"I don't know. We don't have to figure this all out tonight though, Sora. We'll just finish the summer and see what happens." He told her as he walked back to his car.
"Are you breaking up with me?" She asked him quietly.
"I'm saying we'll see how it goes." He told her.
"You are. You're breaking up with me." She said as the tears formed in her eyes again.
"I just don't see how this is gonna work." He told her as he leaned on his car looking down at his shoes.
"I see." Sora said angrily as she tried to bit back her tears. "Oh hell, if you're gonna do it, why wait til the end of the summer? Why don't you just do it know?" she yelled at him as she pushed him into his car. "Come on!"
"What are you doing?" Tai asked as she repeated shoved him into his car in anger.
"Just do it. Tai! Come on! Say it!" she yelled. "You know what I'll do it. It's over! Okay Tai, it's over!"
"Sora, come here." Tai said as he tried like many time s before in previous argument s to hold her and kiss her rage away.
"No. Don't touch me. I hate you! I hate you Tai!" she spat at him.
"Fine. I'm leaving." Tai said as he gave up and got into his car.
"Fine! Just leave!" She yelled as she turned her back on him. But when he started the car she turned to face him again. "No, no wait. Tai! We aren't really breaking up are we? This is just another one of our stupid fights, right?" She asked as he started to back up. "And tomorrow it will be like nothings changed. Tai!" she yelled as he pulled out of her driveway leaving her with her worries and tears.
'What have I done?' Sora thought to herself.
